Bad News: 10 Shot, 3 Killed in Boston; Good News: No Chick-fil-a Outlets Opened

At least this town has got their priorities straight. There may be lawlessness in the streets, but the people are safe from hate chicken.

Ten people were shot in three separate incidents in Roxbury, Roslindale and Dorchester yesterday, and at least three were killed — two of them women — as Sunday turned bloody, police said.

“It’s horrendous,” Boston police Commissioner Edward F. Davis said on Harlem Street in Roxbury, where two women were killed and two other women were wounded when their vehicle was sprayed with gunfire by unknown suspects who may have fled in a white car. The motives in that and the other incidents were not immediately clear. “We’re working the scene, and there are a lot of clues. It’s a very busy scene right now.”

“It’s one of the worst scenes I’ve seen in many years,” said City Councilor Charles Yancey, also at the scene in Roxbury last night. He compared it to the drug-fueled murders of two men and a mother with her toddler in her arms in 2010, saying, “It harkens back to the incident where we lost four people in Mattapan.

This stuff wouldn’t be happening if Mumbles Menino was still alive.
